He is a fountain of great quotes.

"The root of happiness is altruism — the wish to be of service to others."

"If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion."

"Fundamentalism is terrifying because it is based purely on emotion, rather than intelligence. It prevents followers from thinking as individuals and about the good of the world."

That last quotation is ace!

"It is a tremendous mitzvah to always be happy,"
Rabbi Nachman of Breslov (1772-1810)
